We had the Entrance Ceremony on 11 September, 2017. This year we were pleased to welcome 11 new students into the SCOPE. The Entrance Ceremony started with a warm and encouraging greeting by the President of Hosei University, Yuko Tanaka. Following the ceremony, the new students were given a faculty orientation led by the chief of the program, Professor Ryo Fujikura. After the busy morning, the new students were invited to a lunch session where they had the chance to talk casually with the faculty and staff members, and to mix with the intake from other English programs at Hosei University.
